This skill lets you play Jummah khutbah before Jummah prayer, which is a key component of Friday prayer. You may live in a place where there is no Mosque closer to you to attend Friday prayer or because of work commitment / less time you're not able to go to Mosque, this app will be perfect for you to listen to khutbah before performing Friday prayer. This idea came to my mind when I went with my other friends on holiday to Spain. We rented a villa in a remote area, there were only a few holiday homes nearby and the rest were mountains and fields. On Friday we were looking for Mosque but couldn't find any in that town so we decided to perform prayer at home. We asked everyone if someone can read khutbah but no one could do it. So we searched online and found one after looking at many videos and pdf documents. I thought why not create an app which allows someone in a similar situation would be able to play khutbah through the Alexa app with no or minimal effort. All khutbahs are in the English language from different khateebs from different Mosques in the UK. Khutbahs are not specific to a certain maslik people but for everyone. I will try to replace the khutbah with a new one every 4 weeks insha'Allah. If you want me to upload Urdu khutbah too, please let me know in the comments. The phrase you can say to invoke the skill once you have enabled the skill:

This is the second app (1st one is "Beautiful Azan") I have created. I am not a professional developer but a lifelong learner. It was just an idea and a hobby in my spare time as I love to learn to code. I worked hard and spent a lot of time making this app available to you. I broke it many times and fixed it again and again. I am sure I will still have mistakes in it or some recommendations from you to improve the skill. I would love to hear any feedback or suggestions you may have to improve the skill. Feel free to reach out with any feedback or suggestions at "email@example.com" or write a review and I will try my best to resolve any issue.
This skill will work by default on all Amazon Alexa Devices including devices with displays and no additional hardware is required. Credit:
